Brannagan was spotted as a seven-year-old by Liverpool scouts whilst playing for Cadishead in 2004. Brannagan is a childhood Manchester United fan, however he turned down an offer from them to make the move to Liverpool, after he and his father noted the Reds' impressive coaching schemes and training facilities. He began life at the academy with the Under 9s, and has progressed over the years to the Under 18s- for whom he made his debut in the 2011-12 season. This came on 24 March 2012 in a 4-3 loss to West Brom, with Brannagan entering as a second half substitute. On 1 August 2012, Brannagan netted a brace against Rochdale in an Under 18s 2012-13 pre season match. He became an integral part of the U18s in the 2012-13 season, racking up 18 appearances, netting one goal and he also made his debut for the U21s during the season. He progressed to become a more permanent fixture in the U21s for the 2013-14 season. He netted his first goal for the Liverpool second string on 23 September 2013, with a close range effort to seal the Reds' 2-0 win over Man City.
Brannagan is a versatile footballer who has previously enjoyed a spell at right back with the Academy, however he now tends to operate as an attacking midfielder behind the striker or out wide as a winger.
